Somehow lost a pound over the week but then jumped up 3 over night. Im an odd duck!
My log book outside and it's rainy and cold here plus I'm just being lazy so I'll update later.
P.S. how does one gain 3lbs over night and wake up leaner and striated?

11/2 push day
So today the pump was super good but the work itself was very underwhelming. No progress anywhere but at least didn't go backwards. Feeling a bit beat up if I'm honest. Bodyweight is holding steady at ~195-196 lbs which is a loss in my opinion.

Sorry I've been behind posting lately. Just been trying to work on some things in personal life before I lose my shit and pull a multiple homicide/suicide while burning down this town. Ok, that's extreme lol.
On a serious note, my stomach finally turned on me and I ate till I puked yetserday. Couldn't even look at food rest of day. Got 5 of 6 meals down today tho.
Gym was pretty good today, all week really.

11/22 upper loading/lower pump
So as you can see yesterday was my first day trying fortitude training. I can already tell I'm gonna love this. In a lot of ways it's semi close to what I been doing. Not counting tempo but all reps are significantly slower. For suck a few sets I was pumped like a mofo. My legs were still trashed from Saturday leg session and started to cramp on first pump sets so I just quit while I was ahead. Loading on them is tomorrow so we'll see how that goes since I'm still slightly sore and a bit stiff. I believe I squat tomorrow so hopefully I'll be able to match last squat session but I highly doubt it with the new tempo, but that's ok.

11/29 upper load/lower pump
Let me just say off the tip, my calves were fuckin pissed when I got to the calf raises today. I purposely skipped one leg exercise because they just weren't ready but now I regret it cause they feel fine tonight, aside from gd calves . It won't happen again tho!! Caught myself by surprise a couple times today doing bb rows and rack pulls. I thought, with 12 being top of rep range, 405 would be plenty bit at rep 15 my lungs collapsed I'm pretty sure. I looked back at old logs and hell I pulled 500 for 12 during prep so I'll start with that next week and see what happens.

BB rows
225×12
245×11(dunno how the hell I got 11 more reps. Not uncommon to get "stronger" on 2nd set but I figured 8 at best. IT MUST BE THE GOLDLINE INJECTABLE ANANDROL ;)

RACK PULL (BELOW THE KNEE. LOWEST HOLE ON RACK )
405×12

FLAT DB PRESS(you've seen me get plenty more reps but not with this tempo)
100S×10/7

DB PRESS

Hot damn the pendulum squat murdered me took me 6-8 mins to finally get back on my feet. Also, just couldn't get what I wanted out of hammer preacher curls so added some DB curls in since had the time. I'm fine doing preachers with a low cable but free weight just messes with my elbow/arm too much.

Sorry I got off track a couple days. Had a shitty reaction to some meds I was put on. Nothing serious just nausea, appetite loss, and somewhere between shitty and no sleep. We back tho.
Did get a good session in and no loss in progress . Finally got my exercise selection down for the new fortitude program and weights pretty much dialed in so that's cool.
